    1. 1. For the Hoisin Mayonnaise: In a small bowl, combine the hoisin and mayonnaise; mix until well combined and set aside.
    2. 2. For the BBQ Pork Marinade: Place the garlic, ginger, and lemongrass in the bottom of the Vitamix container, add cilantro and sugar in alternating layers. Add the sesame oil, mirin and soy sauce to the top of the cilantro-sugar blend. Turn on the Vitamix and using the plunger, agitate the mix so that it begins to incorporate and blend well. When you have the consistency of a rough pesto, add in the fish sauce, honey, and black pepper. Buzz again to fully incorporate.
    3. 3. Cut the pork shoulder into 2-by 4-by 6-inch blocks. Slice the pork against the grain into 1/8” slices Alternatively, you can freeze the blocks of pork until solid and slice to 1/8” thickness on a deli slicer to achieve uniform cuts.
